Chatting in the living room one night, Ron Orr gave his 15-year-old son Andrew a choice: He could stick with the Boy Scouts of America and his mission to become an Eagle Scout, or he could join Trail Life USA - the new Christian-based alternative that excludes openly gay boys.
Organizers said Tuesday that they were putting the final touches on a "character-development" national program for boys, in the most direct challenge to date to the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly gay boys to participate in Scouting.
"We won't tolerate misconduct within our county agencies," District Attorney Rob Green said. "It is still an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information can contact the state police."
As many as half of those who have expressed interest were not affiliated with the Boy Scouts beforehand, Green said.
